Decked out in as much RED as possible the teachers and students will begin the Parade at 1:30pm from the Elementary school and weave through Downtown, with the parade concluding back at the elementary school.

Students give golf a try
Every year, the lifetime sports classes take a jaunt to Grangeville’s golf course to put their new skills to the test. This year was no exception. On Monday, September 17, 16 students boarded the bus-- ably driven by Ryan Hasselstrom-- and made their way to the course. Once there, they divided themselves into groups, got their clubs, their golf balls, tees, ball markers and maps and set off for the tees. The golf course doesn’t charge the classes for golfing, in hopes that kids come back on their own to play. The lifetime sports students spent the morning driving, putting chipping, and ducking, and came away with a better appreciation of an enjoyable lifetime activity.
Massage for Your Health
Pollyanna Candalot, a licensed massage therapist here in Cottonwood, came to the sophomore health class to share some information on massage therapy and the role it plays in the wellness picture. With posters and handouts, she demonstrated what happens when we are stressed, and how our bodies respond to stress; then, she explained how massage therapy can relieve the physical manifestations of stress, such as headache, neck ache, backache, and sore, tight muscles. Polly also emphasized the importance of stretching, hydrating, and listening to what our bodies are telling us. Finally, with all the students’ names in a hat, we drew one name out, and Sam Spencer won a free hour-long massage with Polly.
